Foods to Include:

We’ve covered a lot ground regarding no-no foods, but this of course raises us to the question: “What CAN I eat that won’t raise my uric acid levels?”

The solution is to adopt a more alkaline-based diet.

Alkaline-rich foods include leafy greens like spinach, lettuce, kale, cabbage, and brussel sprouts. Non-green vegetables like beets, carrots, sweet potatoes, yams, tomatoes, olives, and squash should also be considered. Certain oils like coconut and extra virgin olive oil can help lower your uric acid levels further and restore alkalinity to the body.

There are certain alkaline “tonics” you can prepare that will help lower your uric acid levels.

  • Apple Cider Vinegar: Mix 1 tbsp of ACV with 1 glass of water.
  • Lemon Water: Blend the juice 1/2 lemon with 1 glass of water.

Last but certainly not least, drink a lot of plain old water. This will help flush the uric acid out of your system. Keeping hydrated is key to preventing a multitude of uric acid-related conditions, especially kidney stones.
